    Can I upload a pdf file for users to view without finding a place to host a pdf publicly?

    Asked by crystallin on February 06, 2015 at 12:17 AM

    I need to either embed a pdf or add a link to a pdf so that users of the form can view it without being prompted for account information (for the pdf hosting service, dropbox, google drive, etc). Is there a way to do this?

    Hello crystallin,

    Yes this is possible. If you follow this guide it should provide the instructions needed to get this done. The method that was provided in the guide will allow you to place the link for the PDF on the form and have it displayed through iFrame. You can host the PDF file on your website server and use the method provided above. 

    Here is a demo form with the above method used:
